Tuvya and Ellen Zaretsky Jews for Jesus, Los Angeles, California
Ellen and Tuvya Zaretsky, career missionaries with Jews for Jesus, are currently based in Los Angeles. Tuvya specializes in ministry with Jewish-Gentile couples and trains missionary staff worldwide.
The 2016 Joy to the World gift enabled Tuvya to prepare Jews for Jesus Israeli staff for a major 2018 outreach. Tuvya has trained volunteers from five partnering churches and two messianic congregations this year. Tuvya wrote a follow-up outreach booklet to his 2016 workbook for Christians. Finding Spiritual Harmony in your Jewish-Gentile Relationship will be released in November. PBC also helped Ellen’s work transcribing and editing manuscripts. Tuvya’s work is an innovative contribution to ministry to Jewish millennials, the most spiritually open segment of the American Jewish community.
Tuvya has preached two sermons at PBC: Lift Jesus Up, Isaiah 53 (9/2/2007), and Encourage, Appreciate, Challenge, Isaiah 6 (11/6/2010). Peninsula Bible Church is appreciated as a valued ministry partner with the Zaretskys since 1980.
